Nigerian Songstress Emma Nyra sizzles in Black! Are You Loving the Surprise Birthday Party Look?



Emma Nyra

Well it was her birthday, she wasn’t going to let anyone take her shine.

Yesterday Thursday 18th July 2013, the fast rising songstress Emma Nyra turned a year older.

To celebrate the singer, friends and colleagues including Iyanya, Dr. Sid, Noble Igwe, Fade Ogunro, Don Jazzy and Lilian Unachukwu surprised her with a birthday bash at Four Points by Sheraton, Lagos.

For the party last night, she took to the event in a daring long sleeve black dress, which features a thigh high slit.

Opting for long ombre locks, she styled the dress with a bold silver ring, a gold belt to accentuate her waist, a gold bracelet and orange ankle strap heels.

    July 19, 2013 at 2:05 pm

    Happy birthday…she doesn’t look very surprised lol
    Btw why is she constantly being featured on Bella Naija? She is YET to put out a decent record or have a hit record, all this attention is very confusing its quite obvious she’s sleeping her way to the top!

    • Fun Times

      July 19, 2013 at 2:39 pm

      It’s obvious? To whom biko? Are you the one she’s supposedly sleeping with? Please don’t come here and spew trash abeg! Thanks

    • toju

      July 19, 2013 at 2:50 pm

      I’m sorry but i agree with @wynter she isn’t talented! her manager ubi is forcing paying the press to write about her, where are her hit records? her music is trash and she looks really stuck up! no likable at all…. smh

    • Yals

      July 19, 2013 at 9:09 pm

      She may not be sleeping her way to the top…but I’m sure she’s dating someone in the industry with connections

    Nice dress, she looks nice. Googled her music…. and well its not very good 🙁

      That makes you a hater. you might rot in the hell reserved for BN haters if you don’t change your view and love her music. In fact, if you don’t like her music and her voice,you are musically deaf. Did you not hear that she is making $$$? That automatically makes her the bomb in the music industry. It is about time people like you declare your bank balance, liabilities and future earning potential before you can be critical of internationally acclaimed songstresses like this.
      @Carrie Underwood, i am on point abi? I am a a very fast learner o!

      Dont you have to have a hit record to make money? All I see this girl doing is riding iYanya’s coattails and god knows what else! she might have the ‘best voice in the world’ but her songs are terrible, she should let iyanya write her a hit and MAYBE then we will believe she is making money loooooooooool purleez!

    To all you Emma Nyra Voltrons, I know you all hate the truth and you’re so inclined to defend your songstress even if you looked stupid at it. News bytes for you, she can not sing to save her life, she doesn’t have the sustaining talent of an artist, simply put, she doesn’t have the “IT” factor. Time will judge all of us. I pray we’re all alive to witness it.

      You better be careful, she calls herself “lady of the water” also known as mammy water to most of us. And she excepts us to buy her music. No mammy water spirit in my house or on my tv oooo.

    • Jacobs

      July 22, 2013 at 8:30 am

      Lmao I don’t understand the lady of the water mami water tinz either, she dey do jazz for Iyanya and ubi. Blind am with magic lol

    I think that alot of attention has been given to her because she chose to move from Houston Texas to Nigeria… She’s one of the people that think can make it far in the Nigeria music industry with just her look and half naked outfits…. And she has proven it. There are so many more talents in Nigeria alone that have way more talent but because they don’t have the “connections” or “manager” they are left unnoticed by the media. I have tried countless times to like her songs/videos…no luck.

    I don’t know who she is. Anytime I see a leg sticking all I can think of is Angelina Jolie 🙂

    Hehehehe … This is some joke thingy. They just wanna make this lady popular by force! She’s a talented songtress no doubt but can Bella NAIJA focus on something else please? Emma is full of nudity and that’s what I really hate bout her… Its her birthday so let’s make her feel special. HBD Emma more grease to your elbow and many more years to come… Amen!

    Its evident and very unfortunate that there are a lot of miserable haters on this website who are disappointed with their own lives who now see BN as a platform to make their sadistic attempts to tear down successful people like Emma who God has blessed with genuine talent. Nigerians can we for once learn how to acknowledge and appreciate people who are striving to make something out of their lives? Honestly these fools should go somewhere and die miserably..for real!

    She doesn’t even even have the lean long leg for high slit! Her songs are wack to the wackest!

    She has a lovely figure and really suits the dress, she looks class for once seems like she always half naked this is an improvement….her music is quite bad but at least she’s trying… :/
